Spring Ephemeral Wildflower Workshop, May 7, 2016


Walnut Hill Woods, Buckland

The Franklin Land Trust will offer a Spring Ephemeral Wildflower Workshop to highlight one of the region’s most vivid displays of spring wildflowers at
Walnut Hill Woods in Buckland. Participants will learn to identify a variety of spring flowers, understand the historical significance of certain wildflowers,
and identify the roles of specific plants in the landscape.
